Hi,I thought to share the attached article, where Bhamla et al demonstrate use of the simplest, cheapest (paper-based) centrifuge in malaria diagnosis and several other applications.
Thanks for the information..
To the HIFA Group,I am writing to introduce our early stage nonprofit, OncArt, Inc. Withartist Chiara Eisner, I co-founded and direct OncArt, a 501c3not-for-profit organization based in Boston, Massachusetts, that connectsclinicians with artists to create illustrated health education materialsworldwide. Customized for cultural context with local translations, OncArtmaterials are designed especially for people in low-resource regions whereadvanced rates of disease are high, literacy levels are low, and cliniciansdo not speak the same language as their patients.This week on June 26th, we formally launched oncart.org, the trademarkedresponsive web application that implements OncArt’s concept. Built by SMPC<https://smpc.tv/>, the site is binary: it offers a collaborative designtool and a library of works searchable by user-generated hashtags. OncArtinvites clinicians to *Request Art* for their health messages, and artiststo upload media for these *Requests*. Clinicians and artists’ co-designedworks are saved in the *Library*, to be deployed to patients by sharingelectronically or printing. The website of the National Cancer Institute<https://www.cancer.gov/> is OncArt’s source for supplementing andfact-checking all cancer-related content.We hope that you will go to oncart.org to browse the *Library* and try thecollaborative design tool. If you have an urgent new health message thatyou would like to see illustrated, please click *Request Art *(top rightcorner of *Home* page) to write and save a message to the *Requests* archive,or email me directly with your health message. For example, patienteducation content for home management of children with diarrhoea(prevention, symptoms, home treatments) could be illustrated by our artistsfor deployment to our partner sites and others via online sharing.Please contact me with any questions. I hope to hear from you and lookforward to collaborating with you to advance health literacy.Thanks and best regards,Julia Shivers
Wonderful!Not just for lay people,it may be a good idea to also develop animations etc for physician education
